The PrimeLife / IFIP Summer School was successfully held from August 2nd to August 6th, 2010 in Helsingborg, Sweden. Over 75 participants from governmental, academic and research institutions discussed topics related to privacy, data protection and data security under the viewpoint of identity management and lifelong privacy. The Summer School was arranged the second year in a row by the EC-funded PrimeLife project and was chaired by Simone Fischer-Hübner, Karlstad University, Sweden.

The Summer School intended to bring together students, PhD candidates and research assistants on the one hand with leading researchers, academics and policy makers on the other hand. The program consisted of keynotes held by senior researchers in the morning and PhD students, researchers and parishioners presenting peer reviewed papers in afternoon sessions.

The contribution by Michael Dowd on “Contextualised concerns: The online privacy attitudes of young adults” was honoured with the Best Student Paper Award donated by IFIP for his paper contribution. The papers by Stefan Berthold titled “Towards Formal Languages for Privacy Options” and Harald Zwingelberg on “Assessing the necessity for collecting personal data from the new German eID card” received an honourable mention by the award committee. Congratulations from the PrimeLife web team!

Slides of the presentations held in Helsingborg are available online here. The proceedings are in preparation and will be published with Springer.
